"temperatures are routinely in the 30°C's in summer" - dubious

As part of drawing the map for the South Island, I'm thinking of tweaking the regions. The current ones look a bit unbalanced so I'm proposing to shrink the current six top level regions to four as follows:
This breaks the island into four good-sized chunks that are related geographically and travel-wse: the top of the island, the southern part, east of the Southern Alps (i.e., the Canterbury Plains) and west of the Southern Alps (West Coast). The borders for the travel regions would follow the borders of the equivalent official administrative regions.
